Can someone help me? I'm really frustrated now and eating through my data like theres no tomorrow. Since I did the ICS update I can't connect my samsung galaxy s2 to my home wireless router (belkin n1)! It says obtaining ip address...authenticating...saved secured with wpa/wpa2 psk and then repeats over and over again! But no Wi-Fi, and I cant get online etc...

Does anyone know what would cause this? How do I fix it?

How did you perform the update? via KIES or some other method? Check to ensure in the Wi-Fi settings you haven't specified a static IP address for your phone. And that your router isn't configured to disallow/allow certain IP addresses or MAC addresses. – Sparx Jun 14 '12 at 18:11

What steps have you undertaken to resolve the problem?

Some suggestions:

  • Try restarting the phone
  • Try removing the network entry ("Forget Network"), then add it again. Please make sure that you have the necessary information to reconnect before doing this.
